"My Master is delaying" / Two witness policy


Jesus described "the wicked steward" by means of a list of characteristics (Luke 12:45-46,39-40,56; 16:1-2).
That steward would originally have been appointed by Christ himself (Luke 12:42; 1Cor.4:2; Gal.4:1-2; Col.1:25), for the purpose of "feeding" his entire household of chosen and hired servants (Luke 12:42; Heb.3:6; 1Tim.3:15; 1Cor.3:16; 14:33; 1Pet.2:5,9) (Rom.8:29-30; 9:23; John 17:22; 1Cor.2:7; 2Thess.2:14; John10:35; 1:14; 17:22) (Matt.20:1; 21:28-31; 15:24; Rom.9:23-24).
(Who are the gods? --John10:34-35)
One trait which Jesus ascribed the wicked steward, was that he would realize, "My Master is delaying" (Luke12:45). 
That steward had falsely claimed that the Master/Bridegroom, had already arrived (2Thess.2:1-3; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16). 
(http://pearl-anillustration.blogspot.com/)
Since the Master's arrival includes an eternal appointment for the faithful (Matt.25:19; Luke19:17; 16:10-12; Dan.7:22,18), the steward could then assert that he had already been appointed as the "faithful slave" over all the Master's belongings (Matt.24:46-47; 28:18; Ps.2:8; Gen.13:14-15; 28:13-14; Dan.7:18), including all those deluded by this false proclamation about the Master's arrival.
Subjection to the unfounded authority of such a steward, and belief in his lying assertions, would place subjected followers under spiritual captivity to deception (Col.2:8; Rev.13:11,7,10; Luke 21:24; Rev.11:2).
Christ's "virgins" (2Cor.11:2; Matt.25:1) would also accept the bad provisions/"fruit"/teachings  coming from the wicked steward/false prophet, which would result in their having premature expectation (Matt.25:5). The Steward's declaration was premature (Dan.7:25,8; Rev.13:5). Expectations were disappointed (Luke17:20-23; Matt.24:23-25). The wicked steward would eventually be forced to retract his initial false assertion, by admitting the "delay" (Luke12:45)... 
which in truth, such a delay of the Master does not occur, because the Master/Bridegroom arrives, just when he should (Hab.2:3; Heb.10:37; Rev.22:20).

The "governing body" of "Jehovah's Witnesses" has recently changed their doctrine about the arrival of Christ, and when his inspection of all Churches claiming to be his Christian servants, occurred. In the past, they taught that their administration which was present in 1919, passed Christ's arrival and inspection, and as a result, was appointed as the faithful slave, over all Christ's belongings. 
What do they say now?
The following is an excerpt from
(http://www.jw.org/en/jehovahs-witnesses/activities/events/annual-meeting-report-2012/"
as follows:
"When Does Jesus Appoint the Slave “Over All His Belongings”?
Jesus said that the “master on arriving” (literally, “having come”) will appoint the slave “over all his belongings.” When does the Master, Jesus, arrive?
The expression translated “on arriving” is a form of the Greek word er′kho·mai. Verses 42 and 44 of chapter 24 translate a form of er′kho·mai as “coming.” In those verses, Jesus is referring to his coming as Judge during the great tribulation.—Matthew 24:30; 25:31, 32.
Jesus’ appointment of the “slave” over his “belongings,” then, must also be a future event. He will make that appointment during the great tribulation."

The leadership of "Jehovah's Witnesses" is now asserting, that the Master gave the "first appointment" in 1919, 
(Two Appointments)
and will give the second appointment/final reward, when he really returns (during the Great Tribulation). They also assert that since 1919, they and their governing "Watchtower" predecessors, are the only slaves of Christ being assigned the first appointment as steward. 
But remember what Christ himself said about that first appointment? 
It occurs before the Master leaves and before the Master receives his kingdom 
(Luke19:12-13; Matt.25:14-15) 
(which kingdom, the "Watchtower" claims, began in 1914 -before 1919). 
Jesus did not leave the earth in 1919 (John16:16,7; Acts 1:8-9). If 1919 were the time when the first appointment took place, that means that there were no appointed slaves of Christ (to be faithful or unfaithful) until 1919. Scripture easily nullifies that outrageous assertion (1Cor.4:1-2; 9:17; 3:5-6,8,14; Rom.1:1; Col.3:24; John15:15-16,8; Luke 6:44-45; 2Tim.4:2,5; 1Tim.4:16). Slaves of Christ have existed since Jesus was on earth, when the first of them received their assignment (Luke12:42; John 21:17; Matt.10:7-8; Eph.4:11-12 etc.). Some have been found faithful (2Tim.4:7-8; 1Pet.5:12; Eph.1:1; 6:21; Col.4:7,9,1,12; 1:2,7)... others, unfaithful (Col.2:19; Heb.6:4-6). Both sorts will grow together until the time of final harvest (Matt.13:25,29-30,39; 24:31; Rev.14:14-20) (Mark 13:30; Matt.28:20 B) (Mark 8:38).

Even as anointed teachers (Eph.4:11; 1Cor.12:28), we may make mistakes (Job 38:2; 42:3; 1Cor.4:6). We may speak before we are finished learning and therefore, spoke from a place of misunderstanding. We may prophesy or teach, before we realize our own assignment in the Body of Christ (1Cor.12:27-29,17-19; Eph.4:11-12)
Or, we may have the right idea in our mind, but fail at expressing it accurately. When such happens, we must right the wrong with a humble attitude, and be as diligent as possible in getting the corrections and clarifications to those whom we have taught. This is very different than claiming that the error came from God, which the WT asserts. How so?
They claim that everything they teach, is a message from God, and is never wrong. When they must make changes and "adjustments", they promote such as "new light", as if the previous teaching needing change, was not error/darkness. Light is truth (John 14:6; 1:4). If it is not true, it is not light. No darkness comes from God, and His light does not change (1John 1:5; James 1:17).  
If we as teachers are guilty of teaching error, we must not blame God. It was our failure to go beyond what God gave us (1Cor.4:6; John12:49), or to lose His spirit (Matt.25:8). It was Satan who claimed that his darkness was light (Gen.3:5; 1Tim.6:20). 

Jesus said, "Wisdom is PROVED RIGHTEOUS by it's children/results/works" (Luke 7:35). 
(John 7:17-18; 8:54,50)
Although the governing body claims that they are "the faithful slave", and they enforce that claim with an army of Gentile "elders"...
If by their own admission, the "wisdom" that they previously declared, is conceded as error (needs to be changed), then it was never God's wisdom (Jer.14:14; 23:16,15; Rev.8:10-11).
(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2014/12/wormwood-armageddon-false-prophet.html)
How does a teacher "PROVE RIGHTEOUS", and therefore, exhibit genuine wisdom?
Rom.3:4 tells us...
"Let God be true, and every human being a liar. As it is written: "So that you may be *proved righteous* (John 7:18; 16:13) when you speak, and prevail when you judge."
There it is. If our speech is to be proven righteous and therefore wise and true, we must accept that God is true, and each of us, is a liar.
We prove our belief that God is true, when we derive ALL we teach, from scripture (John 17:17; 16:13; 7:17-18) and Holy spirit (John4:23-24). If we don't, it is not God who lied, but us. If our teachings are from God's Word, it will be found wise and true, and be proven righteous. It will not need to "vary" or change (1John 1:5; James 1:17).

1John4:6 reads;
"We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood."
If we listen to (accept, understand, believe, obey, and teach) the teachings of Christ's apostles and prophets (which are sourced in God's Word), we have the spirit of truth, and have accepted it's foundation (Eph.2:20; 1Cor.3:10).
Those who do not derive all they teach from scripture and spirit, have not accepted the supremacy of God. How can we tell the difference? 
We are listening to (and building upon) the foundation of God's true Temple (Eph.2:20-22; 1Cor.3:10), when we accept ("listen to" 1John4:6; Luke10:16) what they have written in scripture.
By a comparison to those writings, the fruit of a teacher's lips, is known (Luke 6:44-45; Matt.7:20). If that fruit/teaching is rotten, God was not the source of it (Rev.22:1-2; Eze.47:12; Ps.1:3).
All truth is backed by scripture.

I know of no scripture which identifies the current governing body of "Jehovah's Witnesses", as the solitary steward assigned by Christ, or that they are already dubbed by Christ as found to be a "faithful and discreet slave" (Luke 6:26). By their own admission, the bestowing of that distinction, is yet future. 
Why this change in doctrine? Because, the Master is coming later than they originally asserted. The Master is delayed.

I know of no scripture which encourages "pioneering" or the public posting of those names who do, or recording total hours of preaching, 
or counting placed literature, or number of visits, or attendees at meetings (Isa.28:10; Matt.15:7-9; Col.2:22; Mark 7:13), or what people should wear, organizational hierarchy (Ec.5:8), or giving money for ostentatious building projects
Yet I am familiar with scriptures, which dissuade such things (Matt.6:1-6,25; James 2:1-5; John7:24; Col.3:23; Prov.16:3; 2Cor.2:17; 1Chron.21:1) (Haggai 1:9,4; Acts 7:48; 1Cor.3:16; 1Pet.2:5; Dan.7:21; Luke 21:24; Rev.13:10,7; 11:7; 12:17). Today, God's Temple priesthood lies in ruins... overcome and trampled by Gentile "elders".

      --- Two Witness Policy ---

But there is another egregious policy not sourced with scripture, but rather, with the leadership of "Jehovah's Witnesses". It is followed when ongoing physical abuse, or sexual battery or rape is committed between members of the cult.
The victim is silenced by the "elders". They are told they must not go to court or to the police (Rom.13:1; John 19:10-11; Rom.13:2-6), in order to protect the reputation of God's name. Why? Did God commit the crime? 
1Cor.6:1 and Deut.19:15 are cited.
Yet scriptural justice directs that an anointed priest reside over such a matter (Num.16:47; Rev.8:4; James 5:15; Lev.6:7; Rev.5:10; Matt.16:19; John 20:22-23; 1Cor.6:1-3; Gal.6:1; Rom.8:14,9,16; 1Cor.2:15; 1Cor.3:16). 
Yet a serious crime is not a petty "matter"/"dispute"/"perceived injustice"/"smallest matter" (1Cor.6:1) as indicated by the Greek word there. 
Still, God's requirement to convict would be satisfied if there is more than one molestation victim that comes forward over time. Even so, the governing leaders of "Jehovah's witnesses", are not satisfied, and as unreasonable as it may sound, still require two witnesses to each incident.
However, 
when it comes to child sexual abuse or rape, God's own justice makes an exception to the "two witness" rule, as is also the case with murder (Deut.22:25-26), which usually is not committed before any witnesses.
Merciless pressure is brought to bear by "elders" upon traumatized victims, in addition to what the victim has already suffered, as if God required it (Ec.4:1). The result? The evil man goes free, his reputation kept sanitary, potential future victims made vulnerable, and the oppressed are denied justice (1Cor.5:13; Isa.1:17; 10:1-2; 56:11; Ps.82:3; Jer.21:12; 23:17; 7:16-17; Job 6:14; Prov.24:24; 18:5; 31:8-9,5; Rev.18:3; Isa.5:20-23; Hosea 4:18). (Jer.22:16; Micah 6:8; James 2:13)
The real reason this injustice occurs? To protect a facade... the Image of the Organization, as a spotless spiritual paradise (Jer.6:13-14; Eze.13:10; 22:27; 34:2-4; Acts 20:29) (Rev.13:14-15,12,8; Isa.48:1-2; Jer.7:4; Matt.24:23). The innocent who do not honor that false Image of divinity, are slandered and expelled (Prov.17:15; Ex.23:6-7; Ps.12:5; Matt.7:15; 12:7; Jer.23:2; 22:3; Rev.11:7; 17:6; Zech.11:15-17) (Eze.45:9; Isa.59:3-9,14-15; 32:7; Amos 5:12). (Ps.94:21; Rev.20:9; Micah 7:3; 3:10-11; 1Thess.5:3)

Two " Appointments "?

Comments have been added at the bottom 
(click on "comments" link)

A QUESTION:
Hello Pearl, I hope you are keeping as well as can be expected.
I have a quick question regarding the Governing Body, they claim to have been given the first appointment - feeding the Christ's sheep, so the second appointment of handing over Christ's belongings that they originally said they were given in 1919 but now say that this is a future event, is not Christ's sheep His belongings/possessions? If so what actually does the second appointment actually consist of?
-  -  -  -  -  -  -
MY REPLY:

All Christ's Called slaves are given responsibility and assignment during the master's absence (Mark 13:34). These are chosen to make use of Christ's riches, symbolized as "gold" 
(Rev.3:18; John 16:15; 12:49; 1:14; Mark 13:34; Matt.25:14).
Some of those servants of Christ, would faithfully obey and complete the task assigned (Matt.21:28-31) [satisfying the first appointment until the Master returns
(time limited period of a "thousand years"). 
Some would not (Matt.25:24-26,28-30; 24:48-51; Rev.2:4-5,14-16,20; 3:1-3,16-19). Some would repent of their failings (Rev.2:19; 7:14,16-17). Some would not (Rev.2:21; 9:20-21; 16:8-11).
Those tested and found faithful (Rev.17:14; 3:21) during their own lifetimes (with that previous assignment spanning a symbolic "thousand years"), were faithful during a period of difficulty and trial (John 15:20; 16:33; Acts 14:22; 1Thess.3:3; 2Tim.3:12; 1Pet.2:21; Luke 22:31; 1Pet.5:8-9; Rev.2:9-10,2-3; 3:8,10-13; 1:9).
Those who prove victorious despite these sufferings and adversity (Rev.2:7,11,17,25-28; 3:5,11-12,20-21; 2Cor.4:17), will inherit the eternal Kingdom of God, and be priests and kings on earth forever (Dan.7:22; 7:18; Luke 19:16-17) [second appointment].

The Governing Body is mistaken, to think that they are the only priests given a testing assignment by God, to be evaluated by Christ 
(Rev.5:9-10; Eph.4:11,8; Ps.68:18; Eph.2:6; 1Cor.3:16) (Matt.25:14-15)
(1Cor.12:7,12-15,18-22,27-29; Eph.2:20-22; 1Pet.2:5,9-10).
Even if appointed as the steward "star"/doorkeeper/watchman (Mark 13:34; 1Chron.26:12; 9:17-18; 26:16; Eze.43:1; 40:44; Isa.62:6; Mark 13:35; Eze.1:5,18; Rev.4:6,8; Mark 13:35), over the whole present congregation of anointed 
(Luke 12:42; Matt.5:15)(Rev.1:20; 2:1, 8, 12, etc.) (1Cor.4:1-2,4)
the possibility still exists that such a one could prove unfaithful (Luke12:43,45; Matt.24:29; Dan.12:3; Rev.12:4; 2Pet.3:17). Despite Christ's warning, the Governing Body declares this as impossible, and expect their followers to assume the same (Matt.24:4-5,24-25; 1John 4:1; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16; 19:20; 13:11,7,10; Luke 21:24; Rev.11:2). Those who do not accept this false assumption, are promptly "beaten" (Luke12:45)... thrown out of the Congregation by their Congregation's "elders" (John 16:2; Rev.11:7,2). 
(Trample... How does it happen?)
(pearl-disgustingthing.blogspot.com)
Even the Son of God did not punish those who rejected him (Matt.5:44; Luke12:10; John 3:17; 12:48; Matt.12:37; Rev.20:12) despite his authority being greater than the Governing Body's 
(Matt.28:18; 1Cor.15:24-25; 2Cor.11:3-5,12-15,20; Rev.2:20).
Jesus said that any priest not producing fruit, "gets cut down and thrown into the fire" 
(Matt.7:19; Matt.21:19; John 15:8). The fruit each chosen one ("tree") produces, does not come from a "governing body", but comes from their own heart (Luke 6:43-45).
Jesus specifically said that the wicked steward would say, "My Master is delaying" (Luke12:42,45). You yourself just stated that they are changing their doctrine from stating that:
Christ gave the GB's of Jehovah's Witnesses their second appointment in 1918-1919 (and he returned back then to reward the religion of his choice, to represent his truth in the time of the end) to a doctrine which asserts:
that his second appointment and return is yet future.
Is that not essentially stating that the Master's arrival has been postponed/"delayed"? 
Jesus identified this specific change in doctrine, as a hallmark of the "wicked steward" (Luke12:45).

Jesus described "the wicked steward" by means of a list of characteristics (Luke 12:45-46,39-40,56; 16:1-2).
That steward would originally have been appointed by Christ himself (Luke 12:42; 1Cor.4:2; Gal.4:1-2; Col.1:25), for the purpose of "feeding" his entire household of chosen and hired servants (Luke 12:42; Heb.3:6; 1Tim.3:15; 1Cor.3:16; 14:33; 1Pet.2:5,9) (Rom.8:29-30; 9:23; John 17:22; 1Cor.2:7; 2Thess.2:14; John10:35; 1:14; 17:22) (Matt.20:1; 21:28-31; 15:24; Rom.9:23-24).
One trait which Jesus ascribed the wicked steward, was that he would realize, "My Master is delaying" (Luke12:45). 
That steward had falsely claimed that the Master/Bridegroom, had already arrived (2Thess.2:1-3; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16). 
Since the Master's arrival includes an eternal appointment for the faithful (Matt.25:19; Luke19:17; 16:10-12; Dan.7:22,18), the steward could then assert that he had already been appointed as the "faithful slave" over all the Master's belongings (Matt.24:46-47; 28:18; Ps.2:8; Gen.13:14-15; 28:13-14; Dan.7:18), including all those deluded by this false proclamation about the Master's arrival.
Subjection to the unfounded authority of such a steward, and belief in his lying assertions, would place subjected followers under spiritual captivity to deception (Col.2:8; Rev.13:11,7,10; Luke 21:24; Rev.11:2).
Christ's "virgins" (2Cor.11:2; Matt.25:1) would also accept the bad provisions/"fruit"/teachings  coming from the wicked steward/false prophet, which would result in their having premature expectation (Matt.25:5). The Steward's declaration was premature (Dan.7:25,8; Rev.13:5). Expectations were disappointed (Luke17:20-23; Matt.24:23-25). The wicked steward would eventually be forced to retract his initial false assertion, by admitting the "delay" (Luke12:45)... 
which in truth, such a delay of the Master does not occur, because the Master/Bridegroom arrives, just when he should (Hab.2:3; Heb.10:37; Rev.22:20).

The "governing body" of "Jehovah's Witnesses" has recently changed their doctrine about the arrival of Christ, and when his inspection of all Churches claiming to be his Christian servants, occurred. In the past, they taught that their administration which was present in 1919, passed Christ's arrival and inspection, and as a result, was appointed as the faithful slave, over all Christ's belongings. 
What do they say now?
The following is an excerpt from

as follows:
"When Does Jesus Appoint the Slave “Over All His Belongings”?
Jesus said that the “master on arriving” (literally, “having come”) will appoint the slave “over all his belongings.” When does the Master, Jesus, arrive?
The expression translated “on arriving” is a form of the Greek word er′kho·mai. Verses 42 and 44 of chapter 24 translate a form of er′kho·mai as “coming.” In those verses, Jesus is referring to his coming as Judge during the great tribulation.—Matthew 24:30; 25:31, 32.
Jesus’ appointment of the “slave” over his “belongings,” then, must also be a future event. He will make that appointment during the great tribulation."

The leadership of "Jehovah's Witnesses" is now asserting, that the Master gave the "first appointment" in 1919, and will give the final reward, when he really returns (during the Great Tribulation).

Jesus did not leave the earth in 1919 (John16:16,7; Acts 1:8-9). If 1919 were the time when the first appointment took place, that means that there were no appointed slaves of Christ (to be faithful or unfaithful) until 1919. Scripture easily nullifies that outrageous assertion (1Cor.4:1-2; 9:17; 3:5-6,8,14; Rom.1:1; Col.3:24; John15:15-16,8; Luke 6:44-45; 2Tim.4:2,5; 1Tim.4:16). Slaves of Christ have existed since Jesus was on earth, when the first of them received their assignment (Luke12:42; John 21:17; Matt.10:7-8; Eph.4:11-12 etc.). Some have been found faithful (2Tim.4:7-8; 1Pet.5:12; Eph.1:1; 6:21; Col.4:7,9,1,12; 1:2,7)... others, unfaithful (Col.2:19; Heb.6:4-6). Both sorts will grow together until the time of final harvest (Matt.13:25,29-30,39; 24:31; Rev.14:14-20) (Mark 13:30; Matt.28:20 B) (Mark 8:38).

Even as anointed teachers (Eph.4:11; 1Cor.12:28), we may make mistakes (Job 38:2; 42:3; 1Cor.4:6). We may speak before we are finished learning and therefore, spoke from a place of misunderstanding.

If it is not true, it is not light. No darkness comes from God, and His light does not change (1John 1:5; James 1:17).  
If we as teachers are guilty of teaching error, we must not blame God. It is our failure to go beyond what God gave us (1Cor.4:6), or to lose His spirit (Matt.25:8). It was Satan who claimed that his darkness was light (Gen.3:5; 1Tim.6:20). 

Jesus said, "Wisdom is PROVED RIGHTEOUS by it's children/results/works" (Luke 7:35). 
(John 7:17-18; 8:54,50)
Although the governing body claims that they are "the faithful slave", and they enforce that claim with an army of Gentile "elders"...
If by their own admission, the "wisdom" that they previously declared, is conceded as error (needs to be changed), then it was never God's wisdom (Jer.14:14; 23:16,15; Rev.8:10-11).

If our teachings are from God's Word, it will be found wise and true, and be proven righteous. It will not need to "vary" or change (1John 1:5; James 1:17).

1John4:6 reads;
"We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood."
If we listen to (accept, understand, believe, obey, and teach) the teachings of Christ's apostles and prophets (which are sourced in God's Word), we have the spirit of truth, and have accepted it's foundation (Eph.2:20; 1Cor.3:10).
Those who do not derive all they teach from scripture and spirit, have not accepted the supremacy of God. How can we tell the difference? 
We are listening to the foundation of God's true Temple (Eph.2:20-22; 1Cor.3:10), when we accept ("listen to" 1John4:6; Luke10:16) what they have written in scripture.
By a comparison to those writings, the fruit of a teacher's lips, is known (Luke 6:44-45; Matt.7:20). If that fruit/teaching is rotten, God was not the source of it (Rev.22:1-2; Eze.47:12; Ps.1:3).
All truth is backed by scripture.
I know of no scripture that identifies the governing body of "Jehovah's Witnesses", as the solitary steward assigned by Christ, or as already dubbed by Christ as found faithful (Luke 6:26). By their own admission, the bestowing of that distinction, is yet future. 
Why this change in doctrine? Because, the Master is coming later than they originally asserted. The Master is delaying.

I know of no scripture which encourages "pioneering" or the public posting of those names who do, or recording total hours of preaching, 
or counting placed literature, or number of visits, or attendees at meetings, or what people should wear, organizational hierarchy (Ec.5:8), or giving money for ostentatious building projects. 
Yet I am familiar with scriptures, which forbid such things (Matt.6:1-6,25; James 2:1-5; John7:24; Col.3:23; Prov.16:3; 2Cor.2:17; 1Chron.21:1). 
When a crime is committed by a member, the victim is silenced by the "elders". They are told they must protect the reputation of God's name. Why? Did God commit the crime? 
Merciless pressure is brought to bear in addition to what the victim has already suffered, as if God requires it (Ec.4:1). The result? The evil man goes free, and the oppressed are denied justice (1Cor.5:13; Isa.1:17; 10:1-2; 56:11; Ps.82:3; Jer.21:12; 23:17; 7:16-17; Job 6:14; Prov.24:24; 18:5; 31:8-9,5; Rev.18:3; Isa.5:20-23; Hosea 4:18). (Jer.22:16; Micah 6:8; James 2:13)
The real reason this injustice occurs? To protect a facade... the Image of the Organization, as a spotless spiritual paradise (Jer.6:13-14; Eze.13:10; 22:27; 34:2-4; Acts 20:29) (Rev.13:14-15,12,8; Isa.48:1-2; Jer.7:4; Matt.24:23). The innocent who do not honor that false Image of divinity, are slandered and expelled (Prov.17:15; Ex.23:6-7; Ps.12:5; Matt.7:15; 12:7; Jer.23:2; 22:3; Rev.11:7; 17:6; Zech.11:15-17) (Eze.45:9; Isa.59:3-9,14-15; 32:7; Amos 5:12). (Ps.94:21; Rev.20:9; Micah 7:3; 3:10-11; 1Thess.5:3)
-  -  -  -
Christ's belongings are more than his sheep.
His greatest treasure (of refined gold), is the truth that imparts life everlasting 
(Rev.3:18) (John 14:6; John1:14) (Ps.119:89; Matt.6:20; Isa.40:8; Luke21:33; John5:24; 6:27,51,55) 
Each of his chosen priests are given some of that truth (gold talents) (1John2:20,27) (Matt.25:15; 2Cor.4:7), and the assignment to use it to feed the rest of the body members (1Cor.12:7,18,27; 10:17; Eph.4:11-12), as well as all sheep who will listen (Ec.11:6; Luke 8:11; 2Tim.4:2; John 15:8; Luke 6:44-45; Matt.7:20; Rev.22:2,17).
These priests will be judged on their use of the truth Christ gave them 
(Matt.25:19-21; 25:24-25)....
whether they fed his sheep what Christ provided,
or they buried it, due to fear 
(Matt.25:25; 10:28; Rev.12:11; 13:15; Mark 8:35), 
or offered spiritual food ("fruit") that was not the true bread (Matt.7:20; 12:36-37)
(Isa.55:2; 29:8; Matt.25:8-10; Rev.13:17; Isa.55:1-2; Rev.3:18).
(What do "buying" and "selling" mean?)
In the time of the end, the "seventh 'angel' " of the seventh congregation, will be given the spirit of full truth, buried inside the seven seals of Revelation's scroll (John 16:13; Rev.10:7; 22:6; 1:1). 
That light of truth will not keep changing, such as the provisions sent out by the governing body 
(James 1:17; 1John 4:1, 6) (Rev.13:11; 19:20).

These "two appointments" help to clarify the existence of two kingdoms. 
During the time-limited "thousand year" kingdom of Christ, he and his faithful priests, subdue Christ's enemies (Ps.110:1; Acts 7:55; Col.1:13; 1Cor.15:25; 2Cor.10:3-5; Rev.19:11,14; 17:14; Ps.110:2; Rev.14:1; 20:4; Luke 22:29). This is during the first appointment.

(http://4womaninthewilderness.blogspot.com/2014/01/the-day-and-night-of-thousand-years-two.html)
Afterward, the "second appointment" is for those found faithful, to rule forever in the Kingdom of God (Dan.7:22,18; Rev.3:12; John16:22; etc.). (Two Kingdoms)
Any who do not fulfill their first appointment, will not attain their eternal reward (Luke16:11-12,1-3; 8:18), despite the governing body's doctrinal exclusion of other anointed, from their calling and necessity to serve Christ, but that they should obey them instead, and their organization of non-anointed, "Gentile" "elders"(Rev.13:11,14-15) (Rev.2:20; Isa.47:8-10,3). Christ's Chosen servants must serve the Master, Christin whatever capacity God chose them for. (Gal.1:10; Rev.3:2-3; Eph.4:11-12; 1Cor.12:18)
